“Beautifully illustrated in styles as varied as the topics of (Rina’s) stories, her debut graphic novel is a charming assortment of meditations on family, culture, and city living.– Hyphen Magazine
My first graphic novel collects favorite stories from the Namby Pamby minicomic series and various anthology contributions as well as new stories that center around family, cultural history, football fanaticism, and thoughts on a crazy but lovable father. Also includes a 10 page color section of doodle diary strips. Thanks to the great Sparkplug Comic Books and Tugboat Press for publishing this Ignatz-nominated book.
